It really is an adventure!

This was our third summer as hosts at the Williams Lake Stampede Campground. Our attitude towards it has become that it presents us with a series of adventures that help us stay active, learn new things and meet great people. The first is just getting from Cochrane to Williams Lake. It a 12 hour drive … Read more

Show & Shine

I was looking for something to do this Sunday, other than work. I didn’t have to go far. Just across the street from the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds, Chuck’s Automotive was sponsoring a Show & Shine. I’m generally not a car show fan but a couple of these did bring back some memories. I remember … Read more

Canada Food Guide Update

Nothing changes without controversy.  After the Canada Food Guide was changed several weeks ago, parties on both sides are discussing the pro and cons of the new guide lines. To me this discussion, illustrates the problem with the old guide. That it was influenced by special interest groups. I am not a scientist. My interest … Read more

In Reply to Forks over Knives

Netflix has several videos on the state of our health and food supply. This is a review of a film originally released in 2011 called Forks over Knives. The title hints at its better to use your fork to improve your health than a surgery to correct a problem. I like to educate myself about health … Read more

Review of Cheemo RV

We’ve used Cheemo RV in 150 Mile House south of Williams Lake for years. I’ve never been able to stump the service staff yet. They also have a location in Quesnel. This fall we decided to leave the RV in BC when we returned home. We also need a list of repairs. So we talked … Read more

How to choose a Nutritional Product

We’ve spent our lives trying different nutritional supplements. We relied on recommendations from friends and what we hear in the media and advertising. We’ve tried a lot of products. I can’t think of one we found prior to 3 years ago that we still use and recommend. We did find 1 three years ago that changed … Read more

Go for No changed our perspectives

I’ve always been a goal oriented career person. But, I’ve always been in the public sector. Della has been in front end customer service. Now that we’ve started our own health and wellness franchises we’ve had a lot to learn. We experienced a lot of disappointment until we picked up on a couple lessons. The … Read more

A Look back at the summer of 2016

It was wonderful. We spent the majority of the summer in the RV. We hit Drumheller, Rimbey  and Redwater in Alberta; Williams Lake, Sicamous, Penticton and Quesnel in BC. Being in the RV allows us to visit friends and family. Its wonderful to renew old friendships and make some new ones. It’s very special to be able to run a business anywhere and impact so many peoples health and livelihood.
If there is a downside, most campgrounds have poor internet connections. If we didn’t have a online business I would care less. I don’t understand campgrounds that have poor Internet. Most people I know like to stay in touch by email at the very least. I know we’re a little different in wanting a constant, reliable, fairly quick Internet to conduct business. But still, come on campground owners. We always comment on locations that dont allow us to check our email at the very least.
Here’s a video with a brief description and lots of photos of our summer.
